Tv Season Info

The 90s high school experience: Desperate, heartfelt, awkward, exciting, and free of smartphones. Set in the real life town of Boring, Oregon in 1996, Everything Sucks! is a quirky, funny coming of age story that revolves around Boring High School?s A/V Club and Drama Club -- two crews of nerdy-edgy outsiders, who join forces to make a movie and endure the purgatory known as high school. The series stars Peyton Kennedy (American Fable, The Captive) and Jahi Winston (The New Edition Story) as students Kate Messner and Luke O?Neil, with Patch Darragh (Sully, Boardwalk Empire) and Claudine Nako (Grimm) as their respective parents.

Critic Reviews for Everything Sucks!: Season 1

All Critics (47) | Top Critics (14)

It's not perfect, but it's a pleasurable experience just spending time with these young people, especially those played by the super-talented leads, Jahi Winston and Peyton Kennedy.

...full of first-relationship drama, coming-out drama, over-dramatic drama students - basically, all the drama you remember from high school and could want from a teen show.

Is Everything Sucks! suddenly going to reinvent the genre for Netflix and shed new light on high school dwellings? No. But is it an enjoyable enough use of your time? Yes, so long as you have no problems with denim or CD players.

"Everything Sucks!" may not be original, but it has a beating heart, a sense of humor, and at least one distinct theme.

There's a touch of Glee with the revelation that the ham-fisted AV society is in bitter rivalry with the goth-tinged drama club.
